Interesting. How did you find out the breaker size ?
Winter is a very different experience when it comes to EVs. It is a lot more pleasant to upgrade charging options in the autumn.We have only had the Tesla for 2 months and for my driving the 15 amp circuit has been fast enough, so far.
Ah .. I thought you were checking circuits at the hospital.I just went to the breaker box, found the probable garage circuits, and flipped breakers to verify the circuits I was likely to use.

If you are lucky it is a 20 Amp circuit with a 5-20 receptacle. The 5-20 receptacle is easily identified by its extra notch.Another reason I should pick up the 5-20 adaptor. I'm just being lazy, easy to get away with in the summer. I'll have to check that circuit tonight.

At the risk of stating the obvious, I was wondering how you might identify a 20 Amp circuit at the hospital that terminates in a 5-15 receptacle. I would be inclined to pull off the plate and inspect the wire but hospital personnel might have a hissy fit. Can you call a friend on the maintenance staff ?
I stay in town for 3 days to a week a few times a month. The trip is 150 miles door to door. I charge the P3D-, 310 range, on a 120 v circuit at the apartment or the same at the hospital. That works fine in warm weather and when I have at least two days in town but not so well for round trips and maybe not so well when it's -25 degrees. I haven't done the winter thing in the Tesla yet as I bought the car in August of this year. Anyway, for me the SC will be a bit of added security. There is a 14-50 charger at the local KOA.
Any new updates with Glendive? It's the one supercharger that I need in order to make it to Regina from Colorado.
Good idea. I may head out that way after checking with them for activity.I don't think we have any regular riders over that way. I will check progress at the Miles City location tomorrow and see if I can remotely learn anything about Glendive. Is that a Holiday Inn? We can always call the hotel and ask what they know.
